~kitchen yummies for you~


Good afternoon bloggy friends!

The sun is actually peaking through the clouds in the Pac NW! Truly a rare treat anytime after November 1st!  I'm not sure why I feel the need to give a weather report at the beginning of my posts.....hmmmm. 
 Anyway...

I've been working on some things lately....some things to share with you soon.......but not..... yet....

so until I have "the goods" to show, I thought you might enjoy a few kitchen yummies...


Here's what I'm loving about this kitchen...that fabulous clock!
and the chippy pale of flowers and that awesome light/lamp/chandy!
l o v e the simple-ness of it....


Seriously......I so love this kitchen....do you think
I'm crazy?  the beat up cabinet holding the sink?  really? 
really!
the range definitely looks commercial
and the little floral picture is so cute....
and
I love the sweet simple window treatment...


rustic chippy everything.. w/ a chandelier...
nothing more to say....


how about a skirted island? I like it.
and I'm always a sucker for saltillo tile floors.
I know "sucker" is not a very nice word, but it just seemed to fit....sorry mom.


how about a skirted everything?? I am liking it too.
the brick walls are amazing
and
the wood countertops are gorgeous
and
the exposed beam ceiling?
love it all.....



need this in my kitchen....


more brick love
and
um, floor love.



My favorite....
straight from the french countryside...
stone floors, plaster walls
and
hanging herbs and such.....it's killing me....
anyone have some lavender I can dry out?
my insane blackeyed susan's my other perennials
choked out my lavender this last summer......


OK...I lied...this is my new favorite....
it's the light blue cabinet at the end...I need it.
and
the range w/ that fabulous  little work table next to it.
need that too.


I know it's not a kitchen, 
 but in the same file & too wonderful not to share...
you know how I love my pea gravel...

~ ~ * ~ ~

that's it for today friends...gotta go check on my lovey...

my sweet Kenzie-girl is down with a fever & soar throat...


this is her this last spring
helping her mom plant 100 boxwoods....
every 12 inches on center...:-} oh the memories of the projects we do....smiles.




Till next time



and I hope you & your families stay well.



Shellagh

Love the pics of the white kitchens...you are so absolutely right about that clock...crazy cool! I also like the chandelier in that pic. I have been looking for something for my dining room...I think I could maybe re-create this one. Unfortunately, the pic doesn't enlarge..I would love to see a closer shot of it. Can't wait to see what you've been up to! I've only been working, working, working ~ no fun at all!
Have a great week,
Susie

You need to share the weather report as it makes me homesick ... chuckle! Can't do the chippy but everything else is gorgeous.

Popover for our TRIPLE GIVEAWAY if you haven't already. Have a lovely eve. TTFN ~Marydon

Blondie's Journal said...

These are the BEST pictures!! We so share the same tastes. My husband would never put up with skirted anything (except me, preferably short). I think I might have to give some of the kitchens a nice swipe of white paint here and there, but otherwise i love them all...

And I too, report on the weather. That is what happens when we live up north and everyday is strangely different from the one before! LOL!

Come by, Shellagh, I have a giveaway going!

Everything in these pictures is perfect - chippy, skirted, and fabulous.

Each picture holds such charm! But, if I ever build a house I would simply love red brick walls in the kitchen. I don't know what it is, I just love brick walls {in the kitchen-grin}.
Wow! 100 boxwoods! OY! That is a lot! :o)

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Love your kitchens, especially that chippy hanging cabinet. I love white distressed anything! Hope your daughter (and helper) is feeling much better soon!

Love all those photos. I also love the light in the first photo. It is Heather Chadduck's light in her kitchen. I did a little recreation of it for my craft room. It was quite easy to do- take a look:

Hope your young one is better soon! Adore your kitchen file photos. Guess you'd have to have a huge kitchen for all that love. Truly beautiful rooms ~ thanks for sharing ~ Angela

Stephanie said...

I love every one of them.

Lisa said...

We definitely have the same tastes. I loved those pictured. Each and every one of those kitchens. I absolutely go nuts over brick or stone in a kitchen. Great pics, thanks for sharing.
Hope your little one is feeling better soon!

Irene ~ RE~VINTAGED said...

Ah! You have given me a truely happy moment in my day -salivating over beautiful chippy vintage kitchens with the sort of detailling one dreams about!
By the way, I have plenty of lovely italian Lavender in bloom if you want, 'fraid you just have to jet over here to Melbourne and get it back though customs to have any!!
I will send you a bunch next blog I do!!
(if I don't forget, been a litle vague lately, must be too much to do!!)
As usual a wonderful post Shellagh! Thank you :)

The Brocantess said...

Oh so pretty. Love the concrete countertops, white cabinets and touches of stainless steel. Thanks for the visual candy.

*The Beautiful Life* said...

I'd take ANY of those dreamy kitchens!! WOW!

Though, I am definitely much happier with the kitchen I have now that I painted those cabinets! :)

Great post with SOOO much beauty to look at!

June said...

Hi Shellagh, I love them all, but I love the second one the best because it is the lovely Robin's kitchen from Magnolia Pearl. I love her house and would move in if they would let me. I can definitely do chippy!
Hugs,
June

So glad you found me, Shellagh! I followed you right over to your place, and what a beautiful blog you have! I'll be back very often to see more of the beautiful things you love! We do have so much in common--our faith as well, I see from your sidebar! So glad to meet you, and looking forward to getting to know you better!

Irene ~ RE~VINTAGED said...

Thanks for dropping by! The tablecloths etc... are for sale on Ebay. I am going back to near full -time work next year so wont have the time to be the hunter/gatherer I was. Need to scale back and clear the shelves! But you can't keep a good thrifter down, I just have to be more selective in future (Ha yeah thats really going to happen.....).

The Stylish House said...

Shellagh,
These are all great looks! Sleek modern kitchens are nice, but I’ drawn to time worn vintage style, with updated appliances and great finishes.
Wishing you sunny days…from someone who used to live in the Pacific NW.

AuroraSuzette said...

Shellagh, you're so spot on, as always! Love especially the one with all the brick and the mirror. Again with the open shelves though, right?

Into Vintage said...

I just moved from Vancouver and the weather was the first thing on my mind every day - this time of year at least! Nice to see a little bit of sun. And I agree, that beat up cabinet with the sink is amazing! -amy

Rita said...

Hi Shellagh,
love your treat - those kitched pics are every woma's dream. Don't know which one I live best, but I guess # 8 with the hanging dried herbs is more my style! more on the Country with some vintagey accents.
Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog.
Also, I've been wanted to tell you, but always forgot to, that I adore youe header photo. Real chic!!!
Have a great weekend ahead of you!
BTW the weather is lousy in Italy these days. Maybe I should come over for a change!

Beverly said...

Loved looking through your kitchen "Yummies" My favorite was the one with the chandalier and the big farm syle sink. Love that sink.
Hope your Kenzie is feeling better by now. She's a cutie and so sweet that she helps you in the garden.

Room Service ~ Decorating 101 said...

s, we have the same taste! I have had some of these same pictures on past post! I love this style the best, thanks for sharing.

Room Service ~ Decorating 101 said...

I had to come back and read all your post! Years ago, I did the paper bag wallpaper, the flooring was done in my living room 20 years ago and we just did the rest of the house with 1x8 pine boards, not flooring. I love it too. You are going to love my guest room that I have not showed yet. I can't believe how many of the same picture we have saved. Nice to find a soul mate...

Carolyn said...

I am going bck to have another look around.
Thank you so much for your kind comment earlier.
Have a good weekend,
Carolyn

Hi Shellagh,
Opps! Sorry about the mistake-but close enough if your Mom was from Canada(smiles).
Enjoyed my visit!

Miss Mustard Seed said...

Those are some great kitchens. I just can't wait to paint my cabinets white. They are blah maple right now and totally not me. Lots of inspiration here... I look forward to seeing what you're up to.
